Hello!) My name is Joselin Herrera. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New Jersey and New York. I earned my Bachelor in Psychology at Stony Brook University and my Master of Social Work at Hunter College. I was a psychotherapist at an outpatient mental health clinic in NY working on issues such as depression, anxiety, parenting and family struggles, trauma and abuse, as well as life changes. I worked with diverse population in regards to ethnicity/cultures, sexual orientation, disabilities, and socio-economic status.
I believe in a strengths-based approach utilizing cognitive behavioral and solution focused techniques. You can identify your strength during this reading as you have already made a brave decision to seek help. It's imperative that a trusting therapeutic relationship is built so you feel confident to express yourself in a safe and supportive environment. I believe our work is based on a team approach where we work together to achieve your desired goals. Once we identify your desired goals I can provide tools to help you achieve those goals.
I look forward to working with you.
Coping with life changes
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Relationship issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Therapy

Joselin is an amazing therapist. Amazing listener, answers in a timely manner, compassionate, and helps you see situations at different angle to guide you through a situation. She helped me immensely last year, I stopped therapy after I was able to use the skills she helped me learn to get through them. Im in another pickle so I returned. I recommend her. Nothing but a great experience with her!

I filtered through a few therapists before hitting the jackpot with J Herrera. She is thorough, organized, timely, respectful, and thoughtful. She always found ways to reflect my accounts of the past week back into my goals. I felt very encouraged and empowered to set boundaries, which I found to be my main goal during our time together. She also encouraged me to look at situations factually, and pointed out when I had done that on my own which is really encouraging.
I love that she recalls things I'd already told her and can connect past events to present. I never had to repeat myself. I love that she calls right on time and gives a solid amount of time to discuss things and is organic about ending the session without cutting a conversation short. It felt like a really great balance of listening vs asking/presenting ideas. I am very satisfied with her help and highly recommend her!

Joselin has been an excellent therapist for me. She identified exactly what I needed from the very first session. She listens and is kind and caring in her sessions.

Listens to my issues and thinks of various avenues to address them. It is easy to be vulnerable with her and she is attentive.
